This company is okay to work at while your trying to get a better job or just get by for now the management is terrible if you have an issue with something and bring it to there attention they don't like to help or try and fix the situation other than that it's okay some of the shift leads are pretty good.
Couple lunch breaks makes money to support my family
Brand Manager (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – January 2, 2017
The past several years have been one round of layoffs after another. With declining category sales, the only way to make profit is to keep cutting their workforce and replacing people with lower salary alternatives. They no longer invest in innovation nor colleagues. Don't plan to "keep going" here for long. People who end up being successful are only those who can play the political game.
Dont count on being there long unless youre part of the supervisor friend circle
Packer/Shipper (Former Employee) – Asheboro, NC – December 18, 2016
If you come in as a temp don't hold your breath. If no one likes ya you'll be on the outside looking in. Breaks ain't worth going to as it takes a min to walk to the break room(9 min) then wait to get you a drink (1 min) then leave 2 Min early to get back to your line. So basically only a 6 min break. Lunck time consists of eating fast so you can get back to work before they write you up when you're not at the line . then sometime they forget to call ya off so you waste your time and gas which you're not gonna get paid for. But don't worry the management friends gets to stay.
Walmart night stock clerk pays way better.
Worthless breaks, snobby people, call ya off for months and dont care if youre struggling, no benifits, low wages for the work you'll be doing, .
Production Operator (Former Employee) – Saint Albans, VT – November 28, 2016
This was one of the best places to work in St. Albans. Most that worked there have said if they came back to St. Albans they would go back. You knew what your job was and went in and got it done. We all suspected that our jobs were going to Singapore and that is the only downfall of working there. The plant closed and moved to Singapore.
A typical day at work goes very well. When the line is operating very smoothly, the day goes by so fast. Ive learned how to operate heavy artillery and manage to be safe at the same time.Management is constantly around the line to make sure it is running properly and more importantly the workers are safe. My co-workers are awesome, they love working with me and if im having a bad day, they cheer me up. The hardest part of the job is maintaining a productive day bc of the machine maybe have a malfunction of some sort.
employee appreciation surprises every once so often
Machine Operator/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Maryville, MO – February 10, 2016
I enjoyed my job. It was challenging and different every day. I learned how to adapt and be flexible. I also learned to think on my feet. Management was good about trusting us to get the tasks accomplished so there was little or no micro managing. The hardest part of the job was the 12 hour night shift. It was difficult to get into a regular sleep schedule. My coworkers were a great bunch of people to work with.
I learned to multitask, while operating a machine. The typical work day went smooth. Management, very punctual, to the point. Well educated. Co workers were responsible, well experienced, many years at career. Hardest part of the job was, not knowing the things, not trained on. Most enjoyable. I enjoyed working with a team.
Production Technician (Current Employee) – Bennington, VT – November 18, 2015
Used to be a great place to work--- Employees benefits are being cut more and more, work is being shipped overseas and layoffs have begun. Temps are replacing full time employees for lower pay. Terrible morale among workers, depressing atmosphere--all about getting the numbers for no compensation. No future here!
This was overall a good company to work for but it was very evident that the majority of people that work there are from the area and will never leave. This in itself is not a bad thing but when that causes cliques to be formed unfair treatment of outsiders, it becomes a problem.
